Flagstone is a classic look for patios and other outdoor spaces. It has the rugged feel of natural stone but has been sufficiently tamed to function as a usable surface for a rustic space. It’s a tasteful and welcoming look.
There are, however, down sides to using actual flagstone. Laying them requires patience- the stones are natural and thus all different shapes and sizes, so arranging them to fit together can take a while. This guide from the DIY network refers to it, quite rightly, as “basically like assembling a big, heavy puzzle.” Another challenge is making sure all the stones are even, since it only takes one that’s lower or higher than the rest to tilt a table or trip someone. Finally, there’s the price tag: it tends to be a bit more expensive than other materials.
Enter our Attica Beige tile, which gives you the look of flagstone without the fuss. It’s a ceramic floor and wall tile inspired by flagstone that with a high PEI rating for work in residential and high-traffic commercial settings. If you’re concerned about it looking natural, the edges of the tile are wavy so they fit together in a way that’s a little less restrictive than regular tile squares:
It’s a ceramic tile, which means it’s perfectly suitable for a patio in milder climates but not great for outdoor installation in places that see extreme cold. Just look at the way flagstone looks outside. It definitely lends a rustic look to this classic home style:
